Description

We recently faced a situation where we tried to close a ticket that was blocked (marked as blocked by another one), but didn't figured out that this was blocking "closed status".

I think it shall improve usability by including a warning on top of the ticket stating that the ticket is blocked by XXXXX etc.

I agree. Duplication of information on the issue should be prevented IMHO.

I agree that a little notice next to the status dropdown would be nice. It's a training issue to make sure that users know the effects of linked tickets.
